We are so excited to share this wedding. Brian & Jon have known each other since 10th grade in high school and have remained close friends since. (Jon was in our wedding party as well!). This was our first time photographing a wedding in Florida and we couldn’t have asked for a better couple to do so with. Jon & Joylynn are as sweet and loving as they come and to top it off, some of the most generous people we’ve ever met. We stayed the week with them in Tampa before hitting St. Pete’s beach for their wedding weekend. They held their rehearsal dinner at The Post Card Inn the night before where we had a wonderful celebration with friends & family. The next morning they held an 11 am beach ceremony at the Grand Plaza Hotel & Beach Resort on St. Pete’s beach, (which we will admit, scared us to be photographing at that time in the middle of summer on the beach). But then, that blue sky arrived. All of our fears were eased when we removed our shoes and felt the sand between our toes and saw the most perfect day we had been given.
